Ferland registered a pair of power-play assists in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Predators, giving him 10 points in his last 11 games. Ferland, who cracked the 40-point mark last season with the Flames, has been quietly putting together a similar season this year. With 23 points in 37 contests, he should still finish the season north of 40 points despite missing seven games to injury back in December. Ferland is currently benefiting from playing on the Canes' first line alongside the red-hot Sebastian Aho, making him a great pickup candidate in daily formats.
Ferland scored a goal and two assists while adding two shots, three hits and a plus-4 rating in Friday's 4-3 win over the Sabres. Incredibly, it's Ferland's first multi-point performance since the third game of the season. The 26-year-old now has 14 goals and 26 points through 38 games, but if he can remain on Carolina's top line with Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen, Ferland could put together a much more impressive second half.
Ferland scored his seventh goal of the season in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets, his fourth point in the last eight games. It's been an up-and-down season for Ferland so far, as he got off to a hot start back in October with seven goals and 11 points in his first 12 games, followed by four more goals in November. However, an upper-body injury sidelined him for the first half of December, forcing him to miss six games. Since then, he's been looking more like his October self, playing on a line with Victor Rask and rookie Andrei Svechnikov. With 19 points in 33 games, Ferland currently represents decent fantasy value in medium to deeper formats.
Ferland (upper body) committed to a team-high seven hits in a 4-1 home loss to the Red Wings on Thursday. Ferland mashing so much suggests that he's feeling just fine despite how this was his first game back after missing the previous three. He logged 15:57 of ice time against the Wings, which was slightly more than his season average. Assuming you haven't done so already, it's safe to deploy Ferland in all types of fantasy leagues.
Ferland (upper body) will play Thursday evening against the Red Wings, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports. Ferland has been rocking a career-best pace of 0.60 points per game in his first year with the Hurricanes, not to mention more power-play run (2:30) than he'd seen in the prior four seasons with the Flames, so don't hesitate to get him back into fantasy lineups.
